to the president's bill, but asked in return for some relief of the reimbursement under medicare to the physicians elimination of this flawed formula that year after year after year forces the doctors to take these deep cuts so that they can't -- literally can't afford to continue to see medicare patients and of course the request, mr. speaker, at that particular meeting back in chicago probably last may or june of 2009 that there be some meaningful medical liability tort reform. the c.b.o., in fact, estimated that that would save $54 billion. just that one issue would save $54 billion. the c.b.o. says over 10 years, mr. speaker, i respectfully suggest that's a most conservative estimate on their part. i think it would be $54 billion each and every year over the next 10 years. but in any regard, i am blessed tonight to be joined by a number of the members of the g.o.p. doctors' caucus, and we're going to talk about the main theme of tonight, and that is the issue of transparency. and i want to get into that in just a second. nothing could be more important, particularly at this point, this 11th ho

- term liabilities is medicare, medicaid, and health care spending. nothing comes close. social security would probably fix the same way to and ronald reagan sat down together and could figure something out. that is manageable. medicare and medicaid are a massive problem down the road. that is going to be what our children have to worry about. paul's approach, i want to be careful to not simplify this because i know you have a lot of detail in your plan, but i understand it to say that we will provide doctors of some sort for current medicare recipients at the current level. 55 and over. there is a grandfathering in for future beneficiaries. i just want to point out that i have read it. the basic idea is that at some point, we hold medicare costs per recipient constant as a way of making sure that it does not go way out of black. i am sure there are some details -- we hold medicare costs per recipient constant as a way of making sure that it does not have things going out of wahack. it has to be reformed for the younger generations because it is going bankrupt. why not give people the sa
% rate increase? senior citizens in my district on average saw a 45% increase in their medicare advantage plans. 45% one year increase. that's simply unsustainable and the government certainly is never going to balance its budget without addressing the cost of health care. the gentleman from ohio. mr. ryan: i'd like to say that this happened. we didn't end up here, you know, a couple of octobers ago and all of a sudden things were just -- happened. our government was controlled by a conservative, neoconservative ideology for most of the first decade in this country. or of this century. from 2000 to 2008 they controlled the white house and from 2000 to 2006 they controlled the congress. implemented their economic philosophy. hook, line and sinker. it got implemented, they controlled all the levers of government, passed their supply side economics, cut taxes for the wealthiest, that will stimulate the economy and, you know, everything will take care of itself, deregulate wall street, everyone will be honest with each other, no one would possibly do anything wrong if we just weren't watching

security. and medicare. people are worried about and no one is talking about. that is what the tea party is all about -- leave social security alone and leave medicare alone and if democrats tried to protect the -- protected, maybe they will keep the seats. but when they keep threatening $500 billion for medicare, 20 million illegal immigrants to get the jobs, they will let a problem. host: are you involved with the tea party or watching from the sidelines? caller: just watching from the sidelines but understand our point. to many people doing our jobs -- nobody wants to talk about illegal immigration. the president is turning his back on it and people are fed up, especially when they talk about social security and medicare. i am a baby boomer. my wife will be caught -- retire pretty soon. we are waiting for this and a lot of people feel the same way. host: doris is watching us from chicago on the democrats' line. caller: he did not mention anything about a 40,000 people who die every year who did not have health insurance. massachusetts told the people of the country, the only state tha
for this commission is too broad. we can't reform social security or medicare or the tax system or the health care system just one of those things can take years for congress to address. and now we're saying to this commission, hey, let's just do it all at once. and it's not that they're going to form each and every system, but they're going to come up with some painful spending cuts and tax increases that i guarantee you, everybody in congress will dislike. the republicans will dislike the tax hikes and the democrats will dislike the spending cuts. and the supporters of this commission say, and that's its point. because if you just let the regular order of congress take place, we're just going to have partisan food fights all day long, because that's what we have been having. so that's the supporters' biggest argument for this. and they say, look, we're on a time crunch here. you know, the financial crisis has really accelerated our need to deal with this long-term fiscal shortfall. >> well, jean, if you would, stay on this for us. because i at this this is really important work, and whether or n

or not the government should take over 1/of our economy, slash medicare by half a trillion dollars, raise taxes by half a trillion dollars and drive insurance rates up for the most of the rest of our country and i think we heard a large and resounding message yesterday if one of the most, if not arguably the most liberal states in america. the people of massachusetts spoke and spoke loudly. one concern i know a imin of you had about the outcome of this election would be whether the new senator would be seated. i'm convinced now that no gamesmanship will be played by the other side with regard to future votes in the senate. senator jim webb, made it clear he will not participate in any additional health care votes prior to senator brown being sworn in. and i noticed that elected officials in massachusetts who were principally responsible for certifying election after earlier saying take up to two weeks, indicated it could be as soon today. i don't believe the kind of thing we've seen on full diswith the corn husbander kick back, the louis purchase, the gator aide, drafting the bill behind closed doors,
've dealt with medicare patients for my entire practice, when you take $500 billion out of a plan that's already underfunded and goes upside down in premiums in about 2017 and beginning next year, the baby boomers hit, three million to three and a half million every year, you take half a trillion dollars out and add 30 million to 35 million people, three things happen. you have decreased access, two, you're not going to be able to get in to see the doctor, two, you have decreased quality and three, seniors get this their costs are going to get up to get the needed care they need. mr. akin: doctor, you are so eloquent and said it so smoothly, i think you we need to underline what you said. what you're saying is we're going to take $500 billion out of medicare. is this a republican that's going to raid medicare? mr. roe: no, sir. mr. akin: we've been accused of raiding medicare. but it's not us. mr. roe: no, sir, unless you're in florida, of course. mr. akin: if you take $500 billion out of medicare, it's going to be harder to provide services for people. you're not doing just that, you'
wanted system in which seniors don't have these huge gaps in their medicare prescription drug coverage. [applause] and where medicare itself is on a sounder financial footing. those are the things that we are fighting for. and i am not going to stop on them because it is the right thing to do and by the way, if you are serious about reducing our deficit and debt coming cannot accomplish it without reforming our health care system because that is what is gobbling up more federal dollars than anything else. i don't understand folks that say they don't want to see government spending under control and then are fighting controls at the congressional budget office says would cut a trillion dollars off our deficit over the next two decades. [applause] those aren't my numbers. now, we are never going to stop fighting to cut waste and abuse in washington. we do have to reign in death of his-- deficits that been accumulating. families across the country are tightening their belts and making tough decisions. it is time for the federal government to do the same and that is why i propose specific
over the next ten years, the medicare drug benefit will, which is about the cost of the health benefits. so these people just have no credibility whatsoever when they complain about deficits. post ogre book is about this a deli or of supply-side economics as reaganomics as it has been known. starts with a look back to fdr. in a chapter to the triumph of keynesian economics. >> guest: my basic idea was that i had observed the supply-side economics had gone to recycle where there was a real problem that the existing orthodox couldn't handle the new philosophy, the supply-side philosophy, came into existence was implemented come appeared to be successful and then henceforth it was supplied in every circumstance, whether was justified or not. say what kind of a cycle of success and failure. and as i thought about it, i realized that keynesian economics have gone through exactly the same cycle. it had been implemented in 1930's, helped and the great depression, but then was misapplied in the 1950's and 60's and give us inflation. so it seemed to me there was a cemetery here that was interest
and the debate has been exploding. >> i have been told there is a clause in there that everyone that is medicare age will be visited and told to decide how they wish to die. this bothers me greatly and i would like for you to promise me that this is not in this bill. >> nobody is going to be forcing you to make a set of decisions on end of life care based on some bureaucratic law in washington. >> mr. president, i make a living selling individual health insurance. why is it that you have changed your strategy from talking about healthcare reform to health insurance reform and decided to villify the insurance companies? >> that is a fair question. my intent is not to villify insurance companies. if i was villifying them, it is what we would be doing would be to say that private insurance has no place in the healthcare market and some people believe that. i don't believe that. in is historic vote that took place this morning, members of the senate joined their colleagues in the house of representatives to pass a landmark health insurance reform package. if this legislation becomes law workers won'

a deal that i think is unworkable for a medicare advantage in florida didn't apply anywhere else in the country or any new floridians after this year. if you go through the senate bill with a fine tooth comb it is staggering how many special deals there were. part of way the secret negotiation is wrong. we have no idea what is in, what is out, what has been added to this bill in these secret negotiations in the white house. >> greta: that statement didn't help. i'm going to post it on greta wire. any way, mr. speaker, thank you. next senator mccain accuses democrats of unsavory chicago-style backroom politics, ouch! that's just the beginning. senator mccain on health care, next. . get senator mccain right here and right now. on the table health care. senator nice to see you, sir! >> thank you greta, nice to be with you. >> greta: before we get into the discussion about health care which is dominating much of the national buzz and talk. i want to talk to you about haiti. what do you recommend? what can we do to help the people of haiti? it is absolutely catastrophic what has happe
